Reduce Dry Air at Home with an HVAC Humidifier

Do you or someone in your home suffer from sinus infections? Do you worry about the air quality in your home? Have you noticed an increase of static electricity certain times of the year? Did you know adding an HVAC humidifier solves those problems and more?

Excessive dryness in your home is never a good thing. It encourages airborne bacteria and viruses to take hold, makes your air feel uncomfortable, and even affects wood furniture, flooring and doors. The installation of an HVAC humidifier is a simple, yet effective solution. 

A certified HVAC technician installs a whole home HVAC humidifier within your system. You don’t have to think about it again! Just enjoy the results. The units require only minimal maintenance. 

What Is a Whole House HVAC Humidifier and Why Does Humidity Matter?

It’s easy to fault the temperature when it’s uncomfortable inside your home. The truth is, it’s just as likely to be the humidity level as anything else. Too little humidity creates an opportunity for viruses and bacteria to take hold as well as make you and your family more vulnerable to things like nose bleeds. Unlike small portable units, a whole house humidifier provides total home coverage and requires less maintenance. 

One of the benefits of a whole house humidifier versus a portable unit is the work required by the homeowner. Some freestanding units require you to empty them when they are full or to regularly clean them. 

So, the three major improvements to your air are:

  • Improved comfort
  • Healthier air
  • Constant moisture monitoring and control

Read on to learn more about each type of savings.

Comfort

The correct amount of humidity in your air makes you feel comfortable. Too much and you feel hot. Too little and you feel cold. Therefore, control of your home’s humidity level makes you feel more comfortable. Why? Perspiration evaporates more easily and cools your body when humidity is controlled in the summer. In the colder months more humidity keeps you comfortable without drying when heating is needed. 

Health

Too little humidity, a reality in our California climate, results in dry sinus cavities. Airborne viruses and bacteria take advantage of these situations and set up camp, so to speak. This makes it easy for family members to pass around the same cold or respiratory infection for weeks. 

A whole house humidifier provides the correct amount of humidity prevent airborne allergens and particulates from parking themselves in your sinuses. This provides you with healthier air to breathe. 

In addition, dry air contributes to: 

  • irritated eyes
  • dry skin 
  • allergies
  • nosebleeds
  • recurring coughs
  • cracked lips
  • sinus headaches and 
  • dryness in airways/throat

Constant Moisture Control Means Savings

An HVAC humidifier actually saves you money! Controlling your air’s humidity means the air feels cooler or warmer as needed. When the air feels cooler, you set your thermostat a few degrees higher and still feel the same level of comfort. When the air feels warmer, you can set the furnace or heat pump thermostat a bit lower. 

If your home consistently stays at a higher temperature, your HVAC system uses less energy. This results in an energy bill drop. Some homeowners report significant savings!
